I have a kenmore upright freezer model number 253.29082993

Resolved Question:

I have a kenmore upright freezer model number 253.29082993 Serial number WB03924980. The almarm keeps going off and unless something is frozen it will not freeze the item. Like bread, We have lots of frozen meat in the freezer and it is still frozen. This has been and been going on for several weeks. Any suggestions or helps would be appreciated.

sounds like your compressor is not starting all the time. this will get worse over time , do you here any clicking or buzzing in the rear of freezer? if you do you may need a compressor relay. I'll check model and get back to you, thanks Bryan

i removed bottom drawer and there was frost at the very bottom or icetoward the very back where the sealing (white band) had broke. But the meat was all the way towards that back area and covering the area where i can see the frozen water or frost. I have the freezer turned all the way up. I do hear it running but I can turn the alarm off but within a couple of hours it comes back on. There was frozen water type at the bottom of the freezer (when I pulled the drawer out but i think it has been there awhile.
